1. The druid in me keeps seeing LB and thinking Lifebloom.2. This is just another in a long line of class changes based on PvP rather than PvE, in my opinion. Paladin's Exorcism is another that comes to mind, as well as the aforementioned Lifebloom. I'd rather they make spells work differently in PvP than to make me change my raiding playstyle to fit the arena I never use.3. For those of you saying mages are top dps, I'd like to see your raid comp. My guild is pretty equally geared T8.5 level & equivalent and for the past few months, the physical vs. caster damage difference in Ulduar has been extremely noticeable. It used to be that the top 10 in our 25-man would be Shadow Priest, Hunter, Hunter, Warrior, Warlock, Mage, Mage, Mage, Rogue, Druid. Now it's Feral Druid, Feral Druid, Rogue, Warrior, Enh Shaman, Enh Shaman, Hunter, Hunter, Hunter, Warlock with shadow priests, mages, and my own feathery moonkin butt coming in usually between 12-14. Our mages are geared, gemmed, and enchanted to the max (the mage class lead even leveled JC just for the improved gems) and the three of them have been playing their class since vanilla raiding. The distance between melee and caster dps right now is significant, to say the least, and I personally think mages need all the support they can get.4. Whoever said that the best nerf to LB would have been to put a short cooldown on it, I agree. Healers had it happen to them in the form of Wild Growth and Circle of Healing, and most adjusted after the initial grumblings. Putting a 6 second CD on it so managing multiple targets becomes a little trickier would have been way better than removing the chance to proc Hot Streak.

But a 6 second cooldown would ruin the whole "Living Bomb is Castable on Multiple Targets Now...Yay!" thing. It explodes after 12 seconds, so with a 6 second cooldown, it would really only castable on 2 targets.
